This coming Tuesday, the US senate will vote on a bill to move Transportation Enhancement funds AWAY from biking and walking projects and into bridge repair.
Write your senators this weekend. America needs your voice to help preserve Transportation Enhancement funding for active transportation projects.
Ask your senators to keep TE funds for active transportation. Taking TE funds and moving them to bridge repair would be a reprehensible absconding of funds that are dedicated to walking and biking enhancements in america.
Write YOUR senators, demand they preserve TE funds for their stated purpose. Bikes don't break bridges, pedestrians don't break bridges.
If the senate wants to get serious about fixing even the most fracture critical bridges in america, they're going to have to find a heck of a lot more money than TE funds would provide. America shouldn't sacrifice the walkability and bikeability of this nation to throw pennies at A HUGE PROBLEM, critical and fracture critical bridges and elevated roadways in this country.
Spending on TE projects can actually help lessen future infrastructure costs. Bikes don't break bridges.
write your senators today, preserve TE funding for active transportation.
